Solution .45 - For Aeons Past (2010)

Introducing Scar Symmetry 2.0 since the first one is now a failure. More progressive, but still retains the Melodic Death Metal tag. Lyrics can be crappy, but the music itself is great thus being one of my favorite albums this year.

1. The Close Beyond
2. Gravitational Lensing
3. Through Night-Kingdomed Gates
4. For Aeons Past
5. Lethean Tears
6. Bladed Vaults
7. Wirethrone
8. On Embered Fields Adust
9. Into Shadow
10. Clandestinity Now
11. Spirit Side Dreaming (Bonus Track)

Perth Express - Harrow and Wealdstone (2008)

Full Length, Vendetta Records / Modusoperandi
February, 2008

Genre: Hardcore/Sludge
Region: Germany

Several members of Men in Search of the Perfect Weapon (one the guitarist/vocalist) and two other dudes (one from Glasses) making searing hardcore tinged with sludge. Their cover of "A Light So Dim" crushes. You can hear it streaming on their bandcamp page now.
